Long-time collaborators Hanon and ASICS Tiger come together for the 25th anniversary of the GEL-LYTE III, using an astronomical event as the theme for their latest creation.
Taking inspiration from the Solstice, a bi-annual occurrence that causes the Earth to experience its longest and shortest days, the Hanon x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III features premium azure-blue suede and plush purple nubuck uppers, with unique perforations on the toe box and selected panels.
3M underlays can be found on the vamp, ASICS Tiger stripes and woven laces, which illuminate the sneaker when it catches the light. Hanon’s flame logo isdistinctively embossed on the heel and stitched on the split tongue, while the sneaker’s collar lining and footbed come with a printed pattern of the Celtic knot and flame logo, reflecting Hanon’s Scottish roots.
An icy outsole completes the wintry appearance of the sneakers, and three sets of laces, along with a custom-made box, make this collaboration worth every buck.
Retailing for S$269, the Hanon x ASICS Tiger GEL-LYTE III “Solstice” drops on November 28th and will be available in limited quantities at Limited Edt (313@Somerset).
